I thought it would be interesting to rerun this column from 2014 on the day of the New York primary -- which, given the context, is raising relevant concerns about the efficacy of our current notion of democracy.

Revisited 04/19/2016

The democratic process is, philosophically, the equivalent of the wisdom of crowds. Add to this multiple layers of political machination and the extreme ideological polarization that is currently true in the U.S., and we may have a situation where we have to revisit what Winston Churchill said in 1947: “Democracy is the worst form of government, except for all the others.”

Since James Surowiecki published his book “The Wisdom of Crowds,” the common wisdom is that we are commonly wise.

Teacher shortages 'of greater concern than full-scale academisation'

Sir Daniel Moynihan, chief executive of the Harris Federation, which manages 37 academies in London, says rising house prices are making it almost impossible to keep talented teachers – and argues that education secretary Nicky Morgan’s determination to press ahead with full-scale academisation is a distraction. “It’s always been an expectation that teaching is a respectable profession and you should be entitled to have somewhere to live,” Moynihan said in an interview with the Guardian. “But it’s not the case now, and nobody in politics is addressing it.

Tyromotion Introduces Virtual Reality to Robotic Therapy to Facilitate Stroke Recovery

Tyromotion has created a rehabilitation device that uses a bilateral 3D arm robot and virtual reality glasses to fully immerse stroke patients in virtual worlds where both the visual and physical environments can be shaped. The device is designed to help patients with limited arm function perform daily tasks by challenging and encouraging them to increase their range of motion and the number of repetitions during their therapy sessions. Both these elements are vital to motor learning.

The introduction of virtual reality into therapy delivers a 3D training environment that can be adapted to each individual patient's abilities. The virtual setting has a gaming element to it, which helps motivate patients to keep repeating their exercises.
